I will try to keep this brief. I have always suffered from painful periods, the last five years have been bad and the last two years have been really, really bad.
I have been to see 3 GP'S at my surgery, they've all poo pooed my symptoms a couple gave me some pain meds and the other wanted me to go on the pill. I don't really want to go on the pill and the pain pills barely touch the discomfort, so little in fact that I've had to top up with crazy amounts of ibruprofen and cuprofen. It all culminated with me collapsing at work and being taken to the hospital, I now have a Gynecological appointment later this month which I'm hoping will lead to some answers.
In the mean time I've been given the usual suspects; mefenamic acid and Tranexamic acid. Also codeine phosphate, but I find I feel really odd with those, even days after taking them, does any one else have weird side effects with CP?
Thanks for reading
